Greg Van Avermaet

"Proud of my achievements"

"A great adventure is coming to an end and I am a little sad. It was a very difficult decision to make but when I look in the rear view mirror, I am extremely proud of my achievements.
I gave my best every day, just so I wouldn't regret anything. I have not only enjoyed my victories but also the road to them.
I thank all those who believed in me and helped me throughout my career. I am grateful to my supporters who have supported me at every moment, even in difficult times.
It is now time to devote time to my wife, my children and to give new directions to my life, hoping to find the same passion.
I would like to thank the AG2R CITROËN team for its confidence and for the team spirit in which I have evolved during three seasons. Until the end of the season, I will give my best to the team as I have done since the day I started cycling. I hope to get some good results.

"A great champion"

"Greg Van Avermaet is a great champion. He has enabled us to climb the podium for the first time in a Tour of Flanders in 2021.
His involvement, his professionalism and his human values have been remarkable: he is an example for our whole team. He will have marked us both as a sportsman and as a man.
We know that until his last race, he will do everything possible to perform under the AG2R CITROËN team jersey and we will do everything we can to support him in this objective.
